Lisa Guenther on solitary confinement

Lisa Guenther of Vanderbilt recently published an incisive column in The New York Times’ The Stone entitled “The Living Death of Solitary Confinement.” Check it out! Her book, Social Death and Its Afterlives: A Critical Phenomenology of Solitary Confinement, is forthcoming from the University of Minnesota Press.

Lisa would like this post to be read together with an alternative version – to do so, click here.

Kelly Oliver also recently published an item for this series, “Pet Lovers Pathologized” – her work in this area just earned her a coveted faculty research award from Chancellor Zeppos!

Congratulations to both Lisa & Kelly!
